The Letter Meme....and I got "G"

Nymeth gave me a letter WEEKS ago....and I've put it off until now. Mostly because I was having trouble with "G". I mean, really. G. Let's just say, this is a whole lot harder than I thought it would be!! Here are the 10 Things I Love that Begin with G:
  • Gaimen. Neil, that is. Ever since that fateful day when I picked up American Gods, Neil Gaiman is on the very short list of favorite writers.

  • Going Green. What can I say? I'm a tree-hugger at heart. We all need to do our part and try to save this planet, even if it's just changing the light bulbs we use in our house. Come on people....let's get environmentally conscious!!

  • Gold Coast....as in downtown Chicago's most beautiful neighborhood!! It's affluent, upscale and contains the "Magnificent Mile" otherwise known as Michigan Ave!! Watertower Place, the John Hancock Building and Navy Pier are just a few stops you can make in the Gold Coast!

  • Grandparents. There is nothing better than Grandparents!!

  • Grosse Point Blank - I think I might have mentioned once or twice (or 50 times) that John Cusak was my favorite actor. Well...this is one of my favorite Cusak Movies. So Smart....and SO funny!! And it begins with a G!

  • Gone With the Wind - The book is in my top 5 of favorite books, and the movie ranks pretty high itself.

  • Goodfellows or the Godfather - Or can you say, Mafia Movies for $1000?? A precursor to The Soprano's (which is one of my all-time favorite TV shows), these movies really showed us a whole different way of doing business!

  • Grey Goose Vodka Dirty Martini - Doesn't it just sound like a wonderful way to relax after a LONG day??

  • Green Day - Just one of the greatest bands ever.....enough said!

  • Gorrilaz - Figured I might as well end with a couple of bands since you all know how important music is in my life!!

There.....it's done! Damn. That was really hard!! If anyone else plays along and wants a letter just let me know. I like seeing everyone's answers!!

G is a difficult letter! I think you did a great job. I really love John Cusack as well (although that particular one isn't my favorite--I think Say Anything or High Fidelity might be).

Hope you're having a great week so far, Stephanie!

Lol. Looks hard too. I would have put Grover in there somewhere though... Great job!!!

I had to literally laugh out loud when I read this post because I knew for certain that Gaiman was going to be your first answer...and it was! lol.

Stephanie said...

Trish - Yeah....G kinda sucked! My favorite John Cusak movie will always be Say Anything (no G!), but Grosse Pointe Blank is a close 2nd. And High Fidelity is right up there too!

Tink - I was actually going to go with Goofy...but he's not really one of my favorite Disney characters!!

Chris - You know me too well! Gaiman is the first thing that popped into my mind when I got G!

Gaiman would definitely be on my list of favorite G's, too. Great job! :)

G was agood book and, of course, it won the Booker Prize, but I preferred Pig Earth.

Serena said...

G...not so difficult for me (though I didn't get that letter, I got W)....but alas you did a fine job.

I love that John Cusack movie...and Godsmack would have made my list.

Amy said...

oh, i see you really like gone with the wind! i HAVE to read it! it's on my tbr list...

joanna said...

well done with a difficult letter! Nymeth had given me a V so I guess she wasn't doing easy letters ;-)

Unknown said...

Great G words!
If you have a letter left to give away, let me know :-) I'd love to participate!

I don't doubt it was hard, G is a difficult letter, but damn girl, you kicked G's ass! What a fantastic list! Of course starting with Gaiman made it a home run, but you built on that fantastically.

Cusak is a favorite of mine as well. My daughter had never seen Grosse Point Blank and so we watched in on Netflix with her last week. Hadn't seen it in a long time and it was good to see it again. Such a fun film, and the music is fantastic.

Well done!!!
